My Voice Experience

I have over 18 years industry experience as a comic, actor, impressionist and voice artist

I have worked as a writer, impressionist and actor in TV and Radio, Narrated video games and audiobooks, and provided life and energy to the voices of many distinct fantasy characters in games and animations

My corporate background and rich deep tones give me a versatile, high status voice that adds gravitas to many corporate video productions and commercials

I frequently voice commercials as an impressionist / voice-double in the style of deceased vocal legends like Richard Burton and original "movie trailer guys" Don Lafontaine & Hal Douglas, I also provide voices in the style of contemporary celebrities like Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson to name but a handful

In 2013 I was the winner of the Voices Pro Radio Drama competition

Nominated for the following 2015 GOLDEN TRAILER awards

"Best Voiceover for a TV spot" and

"The Don Lafontaine award for best voice over"
